San Francisco police arrested 20 people on Saturday, 11 men and nine women who they say are self-described members of the notorious Black Bloc street gang, known for impromptu protests and vandalism. SFPD released the mugshots of all accused protesters who were arrested after allegedly tossing bags of rocks, projectiles, and flares at police as they tried to dismantle the demonstration.
Police say many of these faces are familiar and might be the same group responsible for the chaotic protest in the Mission District last month. During that demonstration, protesters painted the word “killers” across the front of the Mission Police Station.
The detained protesters are now facing charges of conspiracy, riot, refusing to obey a lawful order from a police officer and resisting, delaying and obstructing a police officer, and assault and battery on a police officer.
The bail for each person is VERY high, from $36,000 to 51,000. Occupy Oakland anti-repression committee is depleting their bail funds getting people out who are not in condition to stay inside.
THIS ONES PERSONAL,
